Mayor William Lantigua
Friday November 5, 2010
Mayor Lantigua has been in daily contact with Chief Romero and Law Enforcement officials since taking office in January. The City is now facing an increase in violent behavior that we don’t need to tolerate in our Great City of Lawrence. Some of the recent violent behavior has taken place near or around some of the liquor establishments in the downtown area. However most recently this activity has spilled over to our neighborhoods. “All of this violence is unacceptable and needs to end”, stated Mayor William Lantigua, about the most recent outbreak of gun violence on the streets of Lawrence.
Mayor Lantigua released a 6 step action plan today to help combat some of the recent violence. Mayor Lantigua is calling upon all Federal, State and Local Officials, Law Enforcement, Community groups, clergy, and all residents of Lawrence to assist in stopping the violence in our City.
